 2 lb (1 kg) Beef Stewing Cubes
 2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil

In large nonstick skillet, heat half the oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef, in batches and adding more oil as needed, for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned on all sides. With slotted spoon, transfer to 3-1/2 to 6-quart (3.5 to 6 L) slow cooker.
